Pioneering musician/producer/composer/DJ Simon Posford storms the U.S. this summer with a massive run of Shpongle “Hybrid” DJ dates, debuting the highly anticipated “Shpongle presents The Shpongletron Experience.” For this tour, Posford reveals his brand-new "Decks, FX & 101" show made up of an arsenal of turntables, synths, and effects units. The tour coincides with the release of Younger Brother’s studio release, Vaccine. Vaccine is the third release for which Posford teams with longtime collaborators Benji Vaughan and Ruu Campbell.

The Shpongletron Experience's extended trek across the U.S.A. began April 12 and will run into July, including performances at such festivals as the Coachella Music and Art Festival, Electric Forest, Wakarusa and others. For the tour, the brand new Shpongle Hybrid DJ show finds Posford on turntables with his vintage analog Roland SH 101 and live synth effects. The complete list of tour dates is included below. The elaborately staged multi-media presentation, which Posford describes as a "maelstrom of beauty and surprise," can be expected to raise the bar on Shpongle's longstanding reputation for providing mind-bending, fully immersive multi-dimensional, multi-sensory experiences. T

he shows will incorporate The Shpongletron, a pyramid-like 18-foot structure (designed by Coast II Coast Entertainment and VJ Zebbler specifically for this tour) which will blast audiences with four levels of psychedelic mayhem, along with dancers, multiple video screens and a live DJ set by Posford. Posford will also showcase tracks off the recently released Shpongle EP The God Particle. Random Rab will open the shows.

The Shpongletron Experience tour coincides with the versatile Londoner's other current project: the release of Younger Brother's scintillating new album Vaccine. Vaccine (April 26, 2011/SCI Fidelity Records) is the third album by Younger Brother, in which Posford teams with longtime collaborators Benji Vaughan and Ruu Campbell. The album, which features Marc Brownstein (Disco Biscuits) on bass, Tom Hamilton (Brothers Past) on guitar and Joe Russo (who also plays in the Grateful Dead spin-off act Furthur) on drums, marks a notable evolution from the band's electronic origins, embracing melodic song structures and organic instrumental sounds.

A “U.K.” lineup of Younger Brother toured select U.S. cities this April - with Posford (synth/guitar), Vaughan (Ableton / synth) and Campbell (vocals) joined by Matt White on guitar, Chris Borud on bass and Nikolaj Bjerre on drums.
